GOAL Formative Assessment helps the class teacher to monitor both individual and class progress while also yielding diagnostic feedback that supports effective teaching, learning and target setting. As such, it provides effective assessment that impacts directly on ongoing teaching - plus a standardised basis for monitoring across the core curriculum (Literacy, Maths, Science and ICT).
The tests are especially suitable for use with mixed-ability groups: they allow all pupils to show their strengths, yet motivate lower-ability children with confidence-building success. Attractively presented, pupil-friendly and quick to score, each test is easy to administer to a whole class and only takes about 45 minutes.
The Key Stage 3 Mathematics test covers national curriculum levels 2-7 and is carefully matched to the Numeracy Strategy. The low entry-point makes the test especially useful for screening on entry to secondary school, identifying those pupils for whom 'catch-up' provision needs to be made, and giving a convenient check on Key Stage 2 attainments. The test makes for easy progress monitoring, and can also help to focus revision as end-of-Key-Stage tests approach.
For each pupil, the test gives a national curriculum level (subdivided a-c), plus a standardised score and percentile. It also provides diagnostic profiles which pinpoint problem areas and individual strengths and weaknesses (by attainment target), and the broader skills of knowledge and understanding, calculation and problem-solving.
The Key Stage 3 test booklet is reusable, with a separate answer sheet; separate scoring keys (acetate overlays) allow rapid marking and easy profiling.
The Specimen Set contains one copy each of the Test Booklet, Answer Sheet and Manual/Scoring Keys.
